Description

From 1952-1955, the Red Man Chewing Tobacco Company offered free major league baseball caps to anyone who sent in 50 tabs from the trading cards that accompanied their tobacco product. Offered are ten 1950s Red Man baseball caps of teams from both the American and National Leagues. These crisp wool hats come in a variety of sizes, with mostly firm, uncracked bills and an appearance as if they had just left the factory. The faux leather underlining is inscribed in gold lettering “Redman Baseball Cap” with the respective tag sizes attached. Each of the linings reveals varying degrees of cracking, none of which adversely affects the display quality. Included teams are American League: Baltimore (large), Boston (large), Chicago (large), Cleveland (medium) Detroit (large); National League: Brooklyn (large), Milwaukee (large), Philadelphia (large), Pittsburgh (large) and St. Louis (large). These never-before-worn pieces of vintage baseball apparel are perfect for fans of this famed series.
